Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions (R), who was often the target of President Trump's ire during his time in the administration, on Wednesday vowed to work for Trump's endorsement in the 2020 Alabama Republican Senate primary.

In an appearance on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle," Sessions, who last week launched a campaign for his former Senate seat, said he knows that Trump doesn't always get involved in primaries, but he would actively seek the president's support.

Sessions has for months hinted at supporting Trump , and inched closer to an endorsement this week when he said Trump could beat Hillary Clinton. In January, one of Sessions 's top aides, Stephen Miller, was picked as a special adviser for Trump ’s campaign.

"Certainly, I'm going to work for that and will be seeking it," he said.

The former Alabama senator also praised Trump's "conservative agenda," saying his performance in the White House has been "better than almost any president in my lifetime."

Asked by host Laura Ingraham if there was anything he'd like to say to the president, Sessions responded by reminding her that he was the first senator to back Trump.

"He didn't have a better supporter in the United States Senate than when I was there," he said. "I was his first supporter in the United States Senate, and if I go back to the United States Senate, he won't have a more aggressive, determined supporter when I get back."

Sessions last Thursday entered a crowded Republican primary field that is vying to challenge Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.). Sessions launched his campaign by releasing an advertisement that appealed directly to what he viewed as the many accomplishments from the Trump administration.

(AP) — President Donald Trump says he won't campaign against his former attorney general, whom he publicly mocked in the past, as Jeff Sessions tries to reclaim a seat in the U.S. Senate. Trump, whose relationship with Sessions soured when the attorney general recused himself from the Russia investigation, was noncommittal when asked if he would endorse Sessions. "No, I won't. I'll see how it all goes," Trump said when asked ifTrump, whose relationship with Sessions soured when the attorney general recused himself from the Russia investigation, was noncommittal when asked if he would endorse Sessions.

Trump will keep America from straying down that path, Nuñez said. Tuesday’s endorsement marked the completion of a 180-degree turn from Nuñez, who in the 2016 election cycle bashed then-candidate Trump while endorsing Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a rival for the GOP presidential nomination.

He also tried to separate himself from other past cabinet members, stating, "When I left President Trump's cabinet, did I write a tell-all book? No."

"Did I go on CNN and attack the president? Nope. Have I said a crossword about our president? Not one time," he said.

Trump tapped Sessions to be his attorney general shortly after winning the 2016 election, praising him at the time as a "world-class legal mind." But his views of the former senator quickly soured after Sessions recused himself from an investigation into Russian election interference. Trump once described Sessions' Justice Department as a "total joke."

Sessions agreed to resign at Trump's request following the 2018 midterm elections.

Asked about Sessions' candidacy last week, Trump said the White House has not "gotten involved."

"I saw he said very nice things about me ... But we'll have to see," Trump said. "I haven't made a determination."
